Sreekaram is a type of movies the place a messiah from a metropolis involves the village and solves the problems of farmers. Karthik (Sharwanand) is the messiah right here. The primary time we see him is when he comes again house to his village on a bus. He’s sitting on its high and having fun with the view, as a result of he’s right here for 4 days of enjoyable and leisure together with his family and friends. The theme of the movie is that when docs’ youngsters grow to be docs and the kids of CAs grow to be CAs, youngsters of farmers grow to be folks like Karthik who go away to cities for work and are available again to their villages just for festivals and funerals.
Sreekaram jogged my memory of Swades, for apparent causes: an NRI, performed by Shah Rukh Khan, was the messiah. However his character improvement was incremental in Swades, beginning with skepticism at first earlier than being moved by what he sees. He makes use of methods he has learnt at NASA to assist his village. I’d have appreciated it if Karthik had gone to check agriculture. Or even when he had gone overseas, I’d have appreciated him to have achieved one thing there and are available again with loads of data.
However Karthik seems to be a superman proper from the start. He completes tasks that his boss provides him in 5 minutes. When his boss is about to fireside a buddy he manages to persuade the boss by lecturing him that the buddy had professional causes for doing what he did. He turns into worker of the 12 months and the supervisor of a US department (or one thing like that). He solely wants to offer an evil cash lender in his village one lecture earlier than he turns into a very good man. With such a personality on the heart — a superman — there is no such thing as a drama or suspense in a movie. Karthik is such a good-hearted individual with no doubts in any respect.
However Swades, even with its melodrama, is a comparatively extra real looking movie. A film like that can not be made in mainstream industries like Tamil and Telugu. However on the different excessive, Sreekaram is a fundamental, generic melodrama with a layer of ‘farming’ on high. The villain is one-dimensional and the foolish heroine is one-dimensional too. The songs and fights add completely nothing.
We get unconvincing developments like Karthik’s colleagues leaving their jobs and coming to assist him farm in his village. He provides one lecture to a school and everyone seems to be satisfied that farming is a good profession possibility. There’s a giant leap from fascinated about this stuff and implementing them. The movie by no means makes the leap convincingly.
What we’re left with is that this broad, generic melodrama that claims a superman can obtain something. However in direction of the tip, we’re proven a complete bunch of people that did in actuality precisely what Karthik is meant to have achieved within the movie. I’m positive most of their journeys have been crammed with issue and self-doubt, and would have made a much better movie than this one.
